Our captain and his sidekick were awesome! Very fun and entertaining boat trip. My husband and I really enjoyed the boat ride and seeing how the lobster traps work.

really, was a waste of my money I would of rather spent elsewhere. The tour guide was unimpressive (except to himself) The view was limited by the boat "walls", and a demo of lobster fishing was very much lacking.

I would think 8 or older would get the most out of the talk about the lobsters, but the scenery is enough to keep even the little ones engaged. The 2 hour trip is a good length for young kids
